Boehner: It´s time for
Impeachment or Resignation

Oregon Magazine, by Art Hyland

Original Article

Posted By:TeapartyM, 11/16/2013 11:44:40 AM

The headline is a statement to, not a quote from Boehner, but it was worth the deception to make the point. President Obama has been given so much slack by an enabling Washington D.C. media, that Obama is now hanging onto the rope to avoid falling into the abyss. The fawning media who placed all their political bets on his success, is unwilling to admit publicly (and perhaps even privately) what they know in their brains but unwilling to let their heart in on: Obama is and always was a phony.

It all hinges on what the lay of the land looks like in congress this time next year.
The goof will never resign and impeachment / removal could only begin in ernest then.

I say we go for it.

It´s time to trot out our Nixon-era quotes...

Spiro Agnew...
"If indicted, I will NOT resign!"
Hmmmm... I think he did.
Also pled... "Nolo contendere" to charges.
Time to let the LoFo´s contendere with this.

Regarding Nixon, after he forced Bork to fire Special Prosecutor Archibald Cox...
"Impeach the Cox-sacker!"

Hill-err-ee-ass Herself got in on some of that House Judiciary staff bidness...
until she was reportedly exposed as a witch and fired... or something like that...

The Chinese have always wished for us to live in interesting times...
Look what the taint of Commie Mao did to Tricky Dick!
(I doubt it ever helped Harry Truman that he called Stalin "Uncle Joe"...
not the way for the likeable Truman to refer to another Commie Mass-Murdering Monster,
which is also what Mao was... )

Ronald Reagan avoided the commies´ taint by treating them with obvious disdain
and great distancing.

Now our Wannabe Kommie Dicktater, the lying lunatic living La Vida Loco
in the Spite Hutt... is getting what all commie-tainted dicktaters deserve...

In the words of the late great P.T. Barnum...
"To the egress... "

And don´t let the door hit you in the ass on your way to Kommie Dicktater Oblivion
and exile in North Abracadabra with the Muslim Brudda´s in da Hoodies...
You´ll be the King of De Nile.

If only!! Bring it on!! BWA HA HA HA!!

YES! Finally someone steps up to the plate. Will he be impeached isn´t the question any more than is there any chance of seeing him impeached? The question is should charges be filed that begin the impeachment process and can lead to impeachment be brought? And the answer to that question is an overwhelming, "yes."

I can´t believe I´d ever publicly say the President of the United States is recognized worldwide as a liar. He is and that truth by itself should be enough to make all Americans recoil with fear. Barack Hussein has mocked and defamed the presidency in every way possible and he´s steadily usurping the Constitution and wresting powers to which he has no entitlement or which fall within the law—there´s more than enough to impeach him.

Charge brought to impeach him would focus the world on what freedom loving Americans think of this muslim monster trying to destroy our nation and separate him from the vast majority now feeling powerless and in the hands of pure evil. The message it would send to Israel and the rest of the world that once recognized the United States as the bulwark of freedom is that we´ve had enough and intend to take our country back.

What rule says we have to wait until 2016? What he can do between now and then makes my skin crawl with fear. And as for him resigning, what a joke. Only a man of character would consider such an action.

The drunken and boisterous Joe Biden would only follow. Then the ethically challenged Nancy Pelosi. The nation is deep in fools, that cannot be exported for the same reason the foreigners cannot. There are too many of them, and as life is finite, education and persuasion is no solution for the living. Somehow we need a way that liberals cannot coerce us into their foolish programs. Then they can suffer the consequences, and not us. Levin wants a state conventions to amend the constitution, I think to eliminate this coercion. Ok, I am for trying it.

Boehner shouldn´t be wasting air time on promoting an action that will not ever happen. Instead he and the minority leader in the Senate need to constantly hammer home the need to repeal Obamacare, pointing out consistently that not one Republican voted for this monstrosity. Neither he nor McConnell, however, are capable of trumpeting this message. Politically the Republicans have been presented with a golden opportunity to crush the Democrats. As always the "leadership" appears quite willing to blow it.

What´s distressing is that whether or not he deserves impeachment (which I think he does), it´s not going to happen, because of his racial shield. When he was first running for president, I remember thinking he had absolutely no experience for the job. If he was a white politician with what he lacked (never mind his personality and his inability to work well with others!), no way would he be considered.
Then, after four years, I assumed he´d be voted out because of his abysmal record, but no, I kept hearing, "we can´t let the first black president not complete what he began, he deserves a second term." He deserved nothing. If he had to be given another term because he was "the first black president," can you imagine how the powers that be would respond to and negate the idea of impeachment? Bottom line, we can´t treat this creature as we would others, because of his skin color. Sick.

If you are a liberal, lying is a permitted tactic in the service of the greater good. It is the same reason, in their view, that conservatives are not permitted to lie, because a conservative´s lie is given in the service of evil. They could never understand why any Democrat should ever be impeached for lying.

Let me tell you something, Mr. Hyland: The media didn´t do this by themselves. They had a huge helping hand from the GOP. The vast majority of those spineless saps with an "R" behind their names have set on their power, protecting their gold plated health care and retirement packages and watched while the Mulatto Marxist shredded the Constitution, then used it for toilet paper.

Too afraid of being called racist by the Left; too afraid of a bad blurb in the NYT.

The Republicans/GOP have a lot to answer for and I live to see the day when the likes of McCain and Boehner are driven from office and replaced with the likes of the Ted Cruzs and the Mike Lees.

If just once, just ONE of the Elected "R" would have stood up and called the Mulatto a liar and a law breaker.

Oh, no! We have to play nice. He had to do Kissy Face.

The GOP makes me want to puke. You expect the media to do with that do. You don´t expect it from a Republican --or you didn´t used to expect it. Now we do. The likes of McCain and Boehner are very predictable now.

Cute how they did this. Got my attention. Boehner, in my opinion, is way too weak to ever call for Zero´s impeachment but he just might summon up the courage to call for his resignation.

One thing is for sure, Zero is hanging by a thread and the Dims who may lose their 180k and priceless perks don´t give a damn about him. They will soon be pressuring the Big Nothing to resign.

The media is also quickly tiring of the embarrassment he has become and are working feverishly to position themselves so that they appear NOT to have single-handedly put him in office. Some in the media may now realize that he really is a communist and as much as they hate America, many may not want a fully communist county, NYT excepted.

I still predict a resignation will be forthcoming. You will hear the resignation word more and more in the months to come, just like during the Nixon meltdown. Adios, Zero Ø. Zerobama.

If Obama had to resign it would make him the ultimate victim of racism to the left.They would blame it on relentless racial attacks against Obama by sore loswer white people.It could also lead to riots..There´s a sizable chunk of the left turning on Obama,even some that hate his spying on private comunications.

Crying Johnny will never allow an impeachment of Duh Wun to come out of the House, and even if he did, as long as Dingy Harry runs the Senate, it won´t go anywhere.

But it might make a good campaign slogan, both for Republicans, and primary challengers among Democrats.

After the midterms, there may be action on both repealing 0bamacare and a few impeachments.

Because of the release of a new movie about him, I wish to discuss Steve Jobs and his obvious success. But to do that leads me to one of Jobs’ greatest admirers, Rush Limbaugh. Rush’s fondness for Steve Jobs began with Rush’s great love of technology. He didn’t become enamored with Apple products because of Steve Jobs, he became enamored with Jobs because of his products. Rush knew they must have been demanded by someone who thought like he did: attempt as much as possible to achieve perfection.

It’s starting. Well, it’s been predicted, but what’s beginning is something even America’s low-informed might notice but only when in front of their collective faces. Banks in southern Europe are beginning to restrict access to bank accounts. That this phenomenon will make its way across the pond is becoming rather clear, but only to those who listen carefully. Our money, the dollar we once knew, is now only virtual. The dollar our country made the standard of the world, has become an X and an O repeated and created trillions of times over each day without anything to back up its value. We’ve been off the gold standard since 1972, and since then the dollar established itself as the fiat currency of the world.

Any hope of repeal is long dead, and besides, Chief Justice John Roberts put the final nail in the judicial coffin last summer, didn’t he?

Although wars have produced marvelous inventions by which to win battles, technical, mechanical and human progress expands exponentially when given the freedoms brought about by the maintenance of peace through strength. Peace provides this success only when it is felt to be reasonably long in expected duration. Although tyranny can also produce peace and prosperity, the absence of tyranny combined with the freedoms inherent in the American experiment of a democratic republic have given the world its first glimpse of long-term, true human success and happiness.

In coming days the Boy Scouts of America will decide whether to violate – eliminate, really – its own mission statement, oath and law by changing its policy to allow, within its ranks, Scouts and Scoutmasters who are open practitioners of the homosexual lifestyle. Sadly, to do so would destroy BSA’s credibility as a “morally straight” organization. Such foolhardy capitulation to extremist pressure groups would spell the demise of Scouting as we’ve known it.

One wonders. Well, I wonder, anyway. Did Mr.Harry Reid buy any Christmas gifts this past season? Has Mr. Reid reviewed his own bank accounts, wherever they are, decided to make any new investments recently, or perhaps reviewed any trusts he or his family have established?(break) I wonder about such things because it is apparent Mr. Reid does not have any of those concerns as the Majority Leader of the Senate, which has assumed total responsibility (or not) for the expenditures of this nation.

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

Former Sen. Bob Dole (R-Kan.) said a number of junior GOP senators considering a presidential run in 2016 do not yet have the experience — specifically naming Rand Paul (Ky.), Marco Rubio (Fla.) and Ted Cruz (Texas). The former 1996 GOP presidential candidate sounded particularly skeptical of Cruz in an interview this week with The Wichita Eagle. "A number of the younger members, first-termers like Rand Paul, Rubio and that extreme-right-wing guy, Ted Cruz — all running for president now. I don´t think they´ve got enough experience yet," Dole said. The 90-year-old former senator said, however, his main concern about 2016 is living

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning

New audio reveals an Eastern Connecticut State University professor warning that Republicans will “want things to go back — not to to 1955, but to 1855? if they win control of Congress in November. Republican victories could also put him out of a job, he cautioned. “We will live in a very, very, very different kind of country if that happens,” Professor Brent Terry told students in his Introduction to Creative Writing course, according to audio obtained by Campus Reform. “I mean, colleges will start closing up if these people have their way.” Over the course of his rant, Terry characterized conservatives

Jeb Bush said Wednesday he´s "thinking about running for president," in his most direct statement yet about a possible 2016 run. The former Florida governor spoke at a Catholic school benefit in New York Wednesday morning. He previously has said he´ll make a decision on whether to run for president before the end of this year, making clear that he was considering the possibility. But his comments on Wednesday appeared to be more direct. Asked what his "immediate plans" were, he said, according to an attendee: "I´m thinking about running for president." The answer was met with applause and a standing ovation, after

It may not be tomorrow, but Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) says "something will happen" to force a Nevada rancher to obey a court order to stop grazing his cattle on federal land and pay his grazing fees. "It´s obvious that you can´t just walk away from this," Reid said in an April 18 interview with a Nevada´s KSNV-TV News 3 program “What’s Your Point?” "You can´t have a law that is -- we´re a nation of laws, not of men and women," he said. (Video) Reid noted that most cattlemen pay their taxes, pay their fees, and follow

Thirty-eight Republican lawmakers, including such unlikely bedfellows as John McCain of Arizona and Ted Cruz of Texas, have joined to support a lawsuit challenging the legality of the Affordable Care Act and accusing the president of repeatedly ignoring the law he signed for political reasons. The lawmakers have signed onto a legal brief in support of a lawsuit filed by Sen. Ron Johnson, the Wisconsin Republican who is asking a federal court to overturn Obamacare’s special treatment for members of Congress and their staffs. “The unlawful executive action at issue in this case is not an isolated incident,” the brief

Today is Earth Day. Fox News’ The Five opened its show with a nearly 15 minute segment titled “Earth Day Hysteria.” The goal appeared to be to prove that scientists’ warnings about climate change are overblown and should be ignored if not outright mocked and co-host Eric Bolling was the ringleader of the effort. But he found an adversary in Bob Beckel, who challenged the status quo by presenting actual data on the rise of CO2 levels from NASA, of all places. But before Beckel got to his chart, Bolling took some time to “praise” President Barack Obama for what

WASHINGTON -- In a dissent to Tuesday’s Supreme Court ruling upholding Michigan’s voter-approved ban on affirmative action programs in its public colleges, Justice Sonia Sotomayor speaks from experience about the complex impact of such programs on her own life. Sotomayor’s 58-page dissent, joined by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, has one theme: Race matters. (Snip) She takes a dig at Chief Justice John Roberts who wrote once, “The way to stop discrimination on the basis of race is to stop discrimination on the basis of race.” Sotomayor says: “It is a sentiment out of touch with reality.” Sotomayor says, “Race matters.
